so then, i have been slack and really cant be arsed to write this but hey i have free internet and i know everyone checks this site daily.
we have rented a wicked campervan and it is a cow!!! i cant put pics on but i will when i get back to bens in sydney!!
we travelled to a place called huskisson, where bens friend lives called pam, who also came to the UK (people at bens BBQ will have met her!!). pam lived close to batemans bay and pebbly beach which was the next stop. this stop consisted of ben trying to teach us to bodyboard, it resulted in me getting battered by the biggest waves that i have experienced!!!
from pebbly we headed to Camberra (ACT) which was compelety designed and is a funny place, it has a new and old parliment house that face each other and opposite these is a war memoral everything is symetrical. that night we stayed in a car park outside mooseheads and that is where we went that night, it was a good night and resulted in me getting myself lost from ben and simon and i went to some other clubs and then back to the van to wake the boys and sleep!!
from ACT we headed though the snowy Mt to jinabyne and along barry way, the roads were dirt tracks the drop off the edge of the roads was amazing and in some points we were at cloud level!!! so i drove as i trusted myself and there was no way ben was getting the wheel!!!!!!! when we got though the Mt we stayed at a place called buchen. this is a small village and by small i mean there i one police officer and on pub that everyone goes to and everyone knows everyone (AKA Red necks you could say it is knebworth 100years ago maybe more!!).
At buchen we played pool and spoke to the locals, we met a guy called gangster who had no teeth from not brushing and was so funny. another thing that happened was i locked the keys in the van, is was not the most clever thing to do in a place so remote with no where to stay, i walked into the bar and asked the bar girl if she had any wire to break in!!! insead of wire i got a guy that was in the car in seconds, man they teach them young in these villages.
next was bainsdale, this was only a day visit well a couple of hours, enough time to watch a brass band and get a free meat pie as it was there once a year festival. after this we were on to the most southen point in AUS, Wilsons Pomotory (" the Proms") and the on to melbourne.
we arrived in melborne pretty late but parked in a street just out of town but still busy and went out. after a while it became clear that it was paddy day, this ment it was very busy. we didnt really know where to go, but a girl stopped us and asked us the way to frostbite of course we diddnt know but guess where we went!!!!
the next dat was the grand prix and we were in town so why not, and it as lewis Hamiltons debut and i went to primary school with him so it was good to see him come 3rd!!! that night we were off to bens cous where we had dinner and slept in the street nearby.
then it was off to adalaide where ben had a flight to catch so it was a long drive except we stoppd in port cambell where we could have a hot shower and swim in the sea well ben did i was to scared to the sharks that opperate in these southern areas!!
when we got to adalaide we just slept as it was very late but the next day we headed to Glenelg which is a nice beach and apparently there was a dolhpin in the harbour (not that we saw!!). also it was the week of the police and fire world games so we watched the volleyball and practiced with two women from sydney fire that were rubhish NO CHANCE!!!!!!!! that night we headed into town, 1st stop was a place that looked the most lively but guess what it was expensive so we moved on, finding a karoke bar which was amazing, so funny but it felt like we had walked into a family party!!!!! managed to talk one of the locals into showimg us the place to go after, it was a hotel which was masive, cant remember that much about it!!!!!!!
ok this is dragging on now so we went to cobber peddy, known for its opel and had a guided tour though a mine, stayed at the worlds only underground campsite and then ayers rock and thats us now in a internet place where i put in 2.50 should have lasted 12.5 min but is still going 1 hour later and the timer isnt moving !!!!!!!!
